Diane Porterfield heads to healthcare company, Roche, to discuss 'change' and the menopause
Published: 22nd May 2019
Roche, a healthcare company based in Hertfordshire recently held a 'Live Well' day for their employees. Centred around 'change', the event took place at the company's offices in Welwyn.
As part of the event, Roche ran a workshop focused on menopause and our own Diane Porterfield was happy to attend. Speaking to two groups of women and then to one group of men, Diane presented to the employees about her work and the changes women experience during this phase of their life.
The team at Roche were delighted with Diane, stating "I would like to say a huge thank you for your presentations and discussions during our Livewell day. Your openness and positivity were an inspiration to us all and I know that many people in the audience really appreciated your honest approach at a personal level. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from all three seminars."
Newson Health Menopause and Wellbeing Centre was founded by leading menopause specialist and GP, Dr Louise Newson, and officially opened in September 2018 by Liz Earle MBE. Created to help women receive the most appropriate, individualised treatment for their perimenopause and menopause, it has quickly become a centre of excellence, providing care to women of all ages, as well as running educational events for primary care clinicians.
Dr Newson is also the founder of the Menopause Doctor website, a free resource since 2017, providing the latest unbiased, evidence based information about the menopause and perimenopause for women as well as the most recent national and international menopause articles and guidelines for healthcare professionals. The website has been adopted by the Royal College of GPs (RCGP) as an official educational library aimed at patients and healthcare professionals wishing to learn more about the menopause.
Newson Health Research and Education is a not-for-profit organisation founded by Dr Newson, from which all profits gained from the organisation's activities, such as event sponsorship, delegate fees and speaker's fees, are invested back into the business.
